2010 Noyce Summer Research Intern
I performed research in a plant soil science lab at UVM. The goal of my research was to find a non-toxic deterrent against plant parasitic nematodes. In our lab, we also performed experiments on the invasive exotic species 'Hemlock Wooly Adelgid.' We hoped to prevent that the result of this research would slow the rate at which this species is spreading in Vermont.
2010-2011 Noyce MAT Program Scholar
Student Teaching Placement: Mount Abraham Union High School I am a second-year chemistry teacher at Hillside High School in Hillside, NJ. The Noyce Program introduced me to best practices of secondary education. The small class sizes and engaged faculty afforded productive and personally enlightening discussions. I am appreciative of the extensive observing and student teaching opportunities made available at the Mount Abraham Union HS. I am also grateful for the financial assistance provided by the Noyce Scholarship as a student at the University of Vermont.
